You have access to three saunas and the EasyFit gym. We have eight conference rooms, ranging from the creative Funteeraamo to the large Kallela.

An average Finnish hotel. Our room was on the older building I guess. It is a bit complex to first go to the reception from the garage and then back with the luggage. Was not very convenient. Bathroom not totally renovated. Nothing extra there. The curtains did not prevent the sunshine completely. Air conditioning worked well. Breakfast was of better quality than normally in the hotels of Original Sokos Hotel -chain. Big plus of it. The staff was overall very friendly. Not my favorite hotel in Finland but a good stay. I would give 3,5-4 points.

I stayed here two nights. Overall nothing to compain: staff was friendly, room was spacious (bathroom ok too even slightly small), great breakfast and good location. There are many restaurants nearby, everything in walking distance. Only thing which I found annoying is that rooms weren't cleaned every day. The reason was "eco friendliness". But for my opinion it's more about green-washing. I don't ask anyone to change my towels every day or sanitize everything. But the place wouldn't be any less eco-friendly if rooms are tidied up every day - make beds and empty bins. This kind of eco-friendliness "we don't step to the room while you are staying here if you don't make any special requests for it" is more about cutting employee costs and trying to cover it behind nature values. So this was only annoying thing at Original Sokos Hotel.

We stayed in Sokos Pori on the occasion of my boyfriend's birthday. I mentioned this in reply on the booking confirmation and the staff surprised us with a small gift in the room, highly appreciated! The receptionist was very kind and gave us tips on places to visit in and around Pori. It was not mentioned, but it seems we got a room upgrade: we had a big room with sitting area. The toilet was separated from the shower. The breakfast was extensive and offered also quite some gluten free and vegan options. Tip: you can park the car for free within 3 min walk of the hotel on Pohjoispuisto.

The location of the hotel is very historical. The childhood home of Akseli Gallen-Kallela, the world-famous Finnish painter, was located where the hotel is situated nowadays. The new building was constructed in 1938. Restaurant and hotel operations started in 1939. The first electric sauna of Satakunta Province was opened in the hotel in 1947. Every room got an own bathroom and an own radio in 1966. We had a Superior room and this review is based on it. There are different Superior rooms in the hotel. Our room was accessible for wheelchairs, too. We had motorized (adjustable) beds, a sofa bed, a large bathroom, a self-adjustable air-conditioning machine, a safety deposit box, an iron, an ironing board, a minibar and a television. The bathroom was larger than in other Superior rooms but water pressure was too low. Our room was located on 5th floor and we didn't hear any noise in the night. However, notice that the hotel has several different wings. So rooms and conditions may be very different in other parts of the hotel. The location of the hotel is very central. There is a parking hall under the hotel (15 euros per day, limited parking places). There are several bars or restaurants in or next to the hotel. The breakfast room (Restaurant Satakunta) is large and stylish. Besides, the breakfast was very delicious. You can buy local food products (e.g. fresh bread, fudge, honey, sea-buckthorn juice, sea-buckthorn jam) from the breakfast room. There are a very small shop corner and a small cafeteria corner at the hotel reception. The gym (the fitness room) of the hotel is open 24/7. They also have a sauna but they haven't any swimming pool. Service was very kind in the hotel. However, notice that if you stay in the hotel several nights and you want your room to be cleaned, you have to order the cleaning from the reception the day before. It is included in your room price. So you don't have to pay it.
